Default I learned something interesting today...

Despite not touching a shotgun in... 2 months?, and never shooting a clay target that wasn't in one of Coach Z's skeet classes, those skills do carry over very well to other shotgun sports.

At Raahage's today I tried their "wobble skeet", "5-stand", "sporting clays" kind of setup (by the entrance to the gun show), and hit more than half the targets at unfamilar angles, at longer ranges, while shooting 5 random shotguns.

Thanks, Coach Z and Captain Dick!

Any amount of shooting a scattergun will tend to make you better.. with some simple instruction and explanation of the physics of it, the act of hitting what you are shooting at becomes more obvious then it's a case of repetition and trying different angles, ranges, chokes, leads, and even shot size.. that determines how far you can hit a clay..
